WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Wilmington police have arrested three suspects in connection to a string of armed robberies beginning late Monday and into early Tuesday.

According to the Wilmington Police Department, Jamall Marcus Johnson, 31, Jonathan Jenrette, 22, and Adrian Womble, 22, all from Whiteville were charged in connection to two of three armed robberies reported overnight.

Officers responded to the first armed robbery in 1200 block of South Sixth Street around 11:30 p.m. Monday. The male victim told police that he was walking home when he was approached by three suspects riding in a white, four-door sedan. One of suspects got out the car and approached the victim with a handgun and demanded money.

The suspect took his phone, iPod and a small bag. The suspect then reportedly threw the bag down, and all the suspects got back into the vehicle and left the scene.

The second armed robbery took place around 1:20 a.m. Tuesday in the 1400 block of South Third Street. Another male victim said he was sitting in his car talking on hi phone when he heard a knock on his window, and saw a man pointing a revolver at him.

The suspect reportedly opened the victim's door and told him to get out. The victim said another suspect holding a semi-automatic pistol was nearby, and they took his wallet.

The suspects then forced the victim inside his residence, where they took additional cash before fleeing the scene.

Wilmington police were able to track down and arrest the three suspects around 1:45 a.m.
